of the merger. i was hearing it was a full out acquisition, the new york stock exchange getting bought by the intercontinental exchange and that blew me away. it is an amazing story. we fight for seconds here. going on the air, basically saying at the new york stock exchange about the taken over, this is not a merger of equalss, this is a takeover of the most venerable, one of the most venerable institutions in american finance, the new york stock exchange. it is been there since the old button agreement. [talking over each other] charlie: that is why they call it -- they became essentially a club of freighters under that and expanded to much bigger than a tree, beautiful headquarters, but here is the thing. when i started to digest it it was a phenomenal story. the intercontinental exchange was created only 12 years ago by jeff springer, a longtime executive in the energy industry. people don't realize energy is a commodity, commodities are traded in exchanges locking in costs. he came up with a system to forget about the pits of chicago where people ice-cream at each other or new yor

is joining me from new york. thanks for coming inside "the war room," mark. >> thank you for having me. >> jennifer: i know you have on the air a lot because of the tragedy last week. i'm curious about the policy arm of your organization and what can be done on the state level. many states have or are introducing laws to allow more concealed weapons in public schools, for example. what is your organization doing at this point for that. >> going to the states is one of the many paths to victory to this issue. one of the paths was actually shown in michigan -- your own home state. so you have a very republican governor there and the nra was on the path to pass two really bad bills, one would eliminate background checks for concealed weapons, and the second would allow concealed carrying in places like day cares and schoolyards. and in a matter of weeks the nra had both of those initiatives completely reversed. we beat them on the first one, after the connecticut shootings the governor vetoed the bill and he should have. so the nra is on its heels at this point. >>

to say the scariest thing to me with respect to newtown was when i g-chatted my fellow editor in new york to plot out coverage, and we knew exactly what to do because we had done it three times before. it had gotten so routine and so disturbing to us and i'm worried i'll be writing the same story. >> we can't desensitize ourselves to this, though. >> listen, we're not going to. i've heard about '68 as far as what califano said and how quickly we have to move. this is different. the horrors of martin luther king, the horrors of bobby kennedy, the horrors of all the gun violence through the years, a million americans killed. mark halperin, as horrific as all of those murders have been, nothing has jarred americans like what happened last friday. it just hasn't. americans aren't going to forget this. >> they're not. >> they're not going to forget this, and they're expecting action. you worry, again, if republicans and democrats can't come to an agreement on rounding decisions for ten years, how are they going to address the bigger issues? >> well, we don't really know how the fiscal cliff's
